Theodor Wolf (February 13, 1841 - June 22, 1924) was a Germanmarker naturalist who studied the Galápagos Islandsmarker during the late nineteenth century. Wolf Islandmarker (Wenman Island) is named after him. The wolf volcanoe on Isabela Island was also named after him. He was born at Bartholomämarker (near Schwäbisch Gmündmarker).

He published his Ein Besuch der Galápagos-Inseln, Sammlung von Vortraegen fuer das deutsche Volk (“A Visit to the Galápagos Islands: A Collection of Presentations for the German People”) in 1892. His observations also include notes on the human population on the islands.

He had performed a geologic survey of mainland Ecuadormarker, but unfortunately his collections were lost in storage.

Wolf’s observations, which became the standard interpretation of island geology, depicted the islands as exposed tops of oceanic volcanoes with a distinctly different composition from the volcanic mountains of South America.

He died at Dresdenmarker.
